Due to restrictions, the 2021 Doctoral Research Conference (DRC) was delivered as a pre-recorded film which was released on 16 June 2021. This virtual event was open to all doctoral researchers and staff from across the University and showcased the diversity of doctoral research undertaken at Reading.

The DRC film included presentations from the four PhD Researcher of the Year finalists, the ever-popular Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT©) and an online gallery of Research Life and Image entries.

PhD student in the School of Biological Sciences
